Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina Top Denver Conservative Summit Straw Poll

Dr. Ben Carson has caused a major upset by coming in a confident first in the Western Conservative Summit’s straw poll in Denver, Colorado this weekend.

Carson, who boomed about his anti-political credentials in his main stage speech last night, took 26 percent of the 871 votes cast, while Carly Fiorina, who also had clear support amongst conference delegates, took 23 percent.

But the biggest blow of the weekend was for Rick Santorum, who landed on just two percent of the vote despite some noteworthy support from the audience during his speech.

The results may reflect the resources that each campaign poured into the straw poll at the conference. There was clearly a more organised Carson and Fiorina presence than there were for any of the other candidates, which is reflected in the lower numbers for the Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rick Perry, and Mike Huckabee camps.

Just about anyone but Bush would be great compared to the president we have and the Democratic candidate for 2016 as far as I am concerned.

Now Christie has jumped in the race today, competing for the RINO vote with Bush.
